The “Queen of Fruits,” Mangosteen Extract for Heart Health

Recently, we introduced you to Mangosteen Extract Powder, which is known for naturally containing a whole host of nutritious benefits. Bursting with antioxidants, the Mangosteen fruit is often referred to as the “Queen of Fruits.”

How did Mangosteen get such a majestic title? Some say it’s because it was a favorite fruit of Queen Victoria, while others contend that the Mangosteen – from the fruit to the pericarp – has so many health benefits that it reigns supreme. Here at Zokiva, we believe both theories, though we may want to rename the Magosteen the “Queen of Hearts”for the support it can provide for your ticker when added to a heart-healthy, antioxidant-rich lifestyle.

Need a refresher in the benefits of antioxidants? Antioxidants help your body naturally fight off the free radicals that travel through the body and can damage otherwise healthy cells. This cellular damage can, among other things, lead to the development of cardiovascular disease if left unchecked. 

According to a study published in the Journal of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan, the antioxidant properties of Mangosteen are even stronger than those of vitamin E. Plus, in addition to containing loads of antioxidants, the Mangosteen pericarp contains naturally occurring xanthones. Xanthones are essentially super-charged antioxidants that help to heal cells damaged by free radicals.

Xanthones are also known for their anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic, and vasorelaxant properties. This means that beyond just helping to prevent heart disease, the Mangosteen’s high antioxidant and xanthone content can help to combat or prevent the hardening of the arteries, hypertension or high blood pressure and thrombosis, otherwise known as the formation of blood clots.

Even more good news: Zokiva’s all-natural Mangosteen Extract Powder contains even more nutrients, anitoxidants and general goodness than the Mangosteen fruit itself. When the pericarp and pulp are dried out, the nutritional value is higher because the water is removed.

In addition to adding Mangosteen Extract Powder to your heart-healthy lifestyle, making sure you get regular exercise, eat a healthy diet and avoid stress and smoking are key.  So why not lace up your sneakers, and then reward yourself with a sweet Mangosteen extract smoothie after your work out?

Cheers to your health!
